Protect Children and the Future We All Share

When you give to Save the Children, 87% of every dollar goes straight to our mission — changing the lives of millions of children right here in the U.S. and around the world.

  • $50 – can keep 10 children from going hungry during a pandemic
  • $150 – can provide 75 face masks to protect health workers on the front lines of COVID-19
  • $300 – can help 12 families with emergency shelter following a devastating crisis

Thanks to your support, we’re transforming the way health care is delivered in the world’s hardest-to-reach places.

If Children Say They Want an Education, We Must Listen

It is often forgotten that listening to what children have to say in an emergency is not just ‘a nice thing to do’, it is a humanitarian obligation. Even when food is scarce, water is dirty and medical care non-existent, children tell us they want one thing above all else: the chance to go to school.
